  1. Hi! I've been playing with the low cost ESP8266 modules, that present a IP-over-WiFi as a serial device, and you use modem-like AT commands to control it. I've just put up a project that allows the FPGA to connect to my Wifi network, then send status message to a service that is listening on my Linux VM. It is all done using VHDL state machines (no software CPU), and could most probably be made a little more compact. Because the serial port is running at 9600 and the AT command based protocol overhead it is a pretty low bandwidth solution, but enough if you wanted to add some

    Pmod wifi SDK problem

    Hi i'm using Vivado 2018.2 + Zedboard, my goal is to use the WiFiScan from the examples attached to Pmod WiFi folder. i have build the project in vivado section and exported it to SDK at that point i'm creating new application project, choose C++ project and select finish. i'm getting the following errors: flexible array member 'DHCPDG_T::options' not at end of 'struct DHCPMEM_T' DHCP.h ‪/proj_bsp/ps7_cortexa9_0/include/DEIPcK/utility‬ line 216 C/C++ Problem flexible array member 'DHCPDG_T::options' not at end of 'struct DHCPMEM_T' DHCP.h ‪/proj_bsp/p
  3. Hello, I've been trying for over a two months to make a project including the PmodWifi for sending data from PIR motion sensors to a computer with wifi. At fisrt I was working with Basys 3 board that I had but I undrstood that it doesn't have enough memory space. So I got Nexys 4 DDR board and tried using it there. Unfourtunatly I had some trouble with configuring the DDR so I reached some professional help from an engineer that works in the field. He gave me a new board, Zynq UltraScale+ MPSoC ZCU106, that he knows for sure how to work with and configure. We managed to generate
  4. Hello, I'm a student and currently working on my final project including Basys 3 board and wifi pmod. I'm trying to get started working with the module to understand how it works. This is my first project working with Pmods. I've been using the Getting Started with Digilent Pmod IPs tutorials. I added the newest Vivado library including the PmodWifi IP and I bulit a block design with the MicroBlaze and other GPIO IPs. I followed the instructions of the tutorials and got to the part of validating the design, there I got a warning saying few of the wifi pmod pin are not conne
  5. I've been able to use Waveforms live and connect to my OpenLogger through my phone's wifi hotspot in the past. However since I've upgraded firmware to 1.3.0 I have not been able to to this. I now get a message "firmware update required" even though I'm on the latest openlogger firmware. (see screenshot). The blue light is on solid, indicating that I'm connected to wifi. I've also tried connecting through my home wifi network with waveformslive on my computer, and get the same message. Can anyone at Digilent or elsewhere check to see if you can connect via phone hotspot with fir
  6. Two questions: 1. Supposing I want to use my logger somewhere without a wireless network - is there a way I can have a direct wi-fi connection between my phone and the openlogger? 2. At the moment I can connect to my openlogger through the usb or through wifi, from Waveforms live on my desktop computer. I seem to be able to connect to it from my mobile phone, but I can't launch the instrument panel from teh mobile phone - a "connecting to device" message flashes up on the phone and then nothing happens. Any idea why?
  7. hello, I am new to designing with pmod wifi. I want to send audio files from pc to the zybo via pmod wifi and then process it then play it via output port. is it as easy as that example showed here? Bests, Meysam Sh.
  8. Have just started playing with the OpenLogger that just arrived. Did a firmware update and calibration via a Windows 10 VM on a macOS machine, and connected the OpenLogger to wifi, all went fine. Is wifi meant to be working? If so, consider the following as a bug report. If not, then what's the ETA looking like? OL firmware version: whatever the latest is (how can I determine this from a running device? the UI should have some method of viewing the connected device's firmware version (e.g. in device manager?)) env: Chrome Version 73.0.3683.103 (Official Build) (64-bit); m
  9. Hello, I have a new open logger and want to put it to use soon. I have a couple of issues. I'm hoping Digilent can respond. First, I cannot update firmware from ubuntu ... I have a windows 10 partition and have used that, but that is a pain. When will the linux system function normally? Second, I want to log some data using wifi as having a usb cable attached is not an option in my application. I cannot get the thing to connect to my system or even show any wifi networks. This happens in linux and windows. When will I be able to connect this way? Finally, will I be a
  10. Hi, after setting up my OpenScope initially, it connected successfully to my home wireless lan and I could access it from the tablet or browser as expected. Then, I disconnected the scope from power and tried to run in on a power bank. The blue light wouldn' stop blinking, so no connection to Wifi anymore. I re-attached to the computer assuming the power bank had not enough power, but also there the scope wouldn't re-connect to Wifi. I checked my Fritz!Box if the channel had changed to something above channel 11, but it is a safe channel 1. Any idea what may have happened h
  11. Hello i'm using 2 ZedBoards cards with Vivado 2017.4 (for the record - i've tried to work with 2018.1 but from some reason there was a problem with the wifi's library and someone here at the forum suggest to work with 2017.4. link to this post: the 2 ZedBoards are connected with the PmodWiFi module, this module has been tested and the hardware is working fine. my goal is to transfer a 120*160 matrix of integers from one zedboard to another. i've succeded to transfer string or several integers b
  12. I'm experience a similar problem. In my case I have to use the Digilent Agent to connect and manually setup wifi every time I power up the Open Scope (I get blinking blue light only); some times my network appears in the saved network list and other times it doesn't. I'm on firmware 1.296.
  13. Hey Guys, I have a problem with the OpenscopeMZ. It does connect to wifi, but i cant add it at waveformslive with networks. There is always the error-message: No Responce received. Can anybody help me? Best, Cornelius
  14. Regarding: Zybot Project I am having an issue getting the USB WIFI Adapter to successfully connect to the internet. What is working: 1) Micro SD card Prepared for Boot on Zybo 2) Successfully able to boot and login to linaro 3) Connected a 4:1 USB hub to the USB port on Zybo and all ports are working - Tested this by connecting 1 mouse on all 4 ports, (one at a time) and the mouse works on all 4 ports 4) Camera is working fine, (motion is installed, server scripts copied to init.d and permissions changed) 5) Able t
  15. HI, for my new PYNQ-Z1 to connect over its "USB HOST" interface: (1) will any USB Hub do, e.g., when concurrently a USB WiFi dongle and a USB-Webcam are connected to the PYNQ-Z1? (2) what is your recommendation(s) of a "compatible" stereo camera module (cf. attachment) for the PYNQ-Z1 board ? Thanks.

    Pmod wifi

    Hi, I have two problems regarding wifi 1- I am trying to connect the pmod wifi to an arduino uno. I looked for a library, the best I could found is the WiShield . Clearly, this library is for the WiShield but I thought because they use the same wifi chip as the pmod wifi this could work. However, after I manage to compile the library (I attached the working library after some minor modification in order to for it to
  17. Received my OpenScope MZ a couple of weeks ago and am now just trying to configure it. My application is doing field measurements where this is no WiFi network available. There is only the Android device and the OpenScope MZ. Could some kind soul give me a step-by-step procedure how to accomplish this, starting from opening the shipping box for the first time and ending up with the OpenScope talking to Waveforms Live on the Android device? Many thanks! dwayne
  18. Hello! I'm new to chipKit development but need to build a project on this platform and hope somebody can suggest some tools and libraries to help me. I have a WF32 board that I am connecting to my Macintosh. On this board, I need to create a user interface that displays data to the user on a tablet and communicates this data to the tablet over the on board wifi interface. I would like to use this wifi interface to communicate a data file to a base station and eventually over a cellular connection back to a server over the internet. I have scanned the projects on the digilentin
  19. I'd like to use my OpenScope MZ on the go, so I was hoping I could have it connect to the hotspot I can create with my Android phone. It seems to be connected (solid blue led, blinking yellow led), it's also connected to my computer through usb where I can see it's ip address, but when I try to add the device on the WaveForms Live Android app or on I get the "No response received" error. Even a ping to the ip fails. I also confirmed the ip using the Hotspot Manager app on Android. I tried running through the WiFi setup again. I have up to date firmware (1.296.0). When I
  20. As already mentioned in your FAQ, there are some issues with noise/peaks on the oscilloscope channels of the OpenScope. In the example (OpenScope_Peaks.png) you can see distortions of up to 200mVpp. The test setup: Ch1: connected to DC1 @ 157mV Ch2: shorted to GND OpenScope is powered by a 5V USB power bank I noticed, that the distortions can be completely eliminated by touching the PCB antenna of the MRF24. It seems to work equally well if you tape down one of the insulated ground wires onto the PCB antenna. or keep protective earth close to the outer edge of
  21. I finally got around to using my OpenScope for the first time. I've installed the Diligent agent and have gone through updating the firmware and calibrating. I am able to take measurements and everything appears fine. So, I decided to try the Wi-Fi. I configured it for my network and when I power it with a USB wall charger, it appears to connect and gets an IP address on my network. LED #4 (blue) is lit solid. LED #3 (green) is blinking about once a second, and LED #2 (orange) is blinking about once every 5 seconds. When I open a browser and go to that IP address (, the browser is
  22. Dear Digilent, First of all, I am running Windows 10 Pro 64Bit, Vivado 2015.4 Webpack and my hardware is the Zybo Board Rev.B.3 I am trying to instantiate the PMOD WiFi Module on one of my PMOD ports (There are 6 on this board so I chose the standard PMOD JE) but I face an error when trying to add the 'vivado-library-master' folder which I downloaded from GitHub. I followed this link in order to do that and downloaded the library zip from this link (via GitHub) Once I had the ~123Mb Zip File downloaded: 1) I extracted the zip to a folder near my projects 2) Open
  23. We recently bought a PmodWifi for use with our Zybo board and discovered there is no Linux driver for it. The download for the module does include a driver for use on the ChipKit microcontroller, which could be ported to Linux. However, we'd rather spend our development time on other tasks. We're going to try an SD card with an Atheros AR6233 WiFi/Bluetooth module on it. This module contains an AR6003 chip, whose driver is in the Linux kernel. Since we're booting from SD, we'll use the PmodSD to attach the WiFi. Assuming the card and driver works, it would be cool to have a peripha
  24. I am wanting to use a ChipKit board for a robot using WiFi and CAN. I am only seeing boards with wired network and CAN, is there an option I am not seeing? The MAX32 has the can, but it has an Ethernet also - can the MAX32 be used with the WiFi Shield? The WiFire or WF32 have the WiFi, but not the CAN, the only shield I see here that has CAN is the Ethernet Shield, will they work together? or am I better off with a Wi-Fire or WF32 and a CAN shield from else where like Thanks Bill
